Bail bondsmen raid Phoenix Police Chief's home

- The Phoenix Police Chief got a rude awakening Tuesday night.

Almost a dozen workers with two fugitive recovery companies, Northstar Fugitive Recovery and Delta One Tactical Recovery, went to Chief Joseph Yahner's home in north Phoenix.

They thought they were going to arrest a fugitive wanted for armed robbery; they got the address from a tip on social media.

Phoenix Police officers responded to the home where they found two vehicles parked on the Chief's property with lights shining on the home. Several employees were armed and shining flashlights inside the home.

Police arrested 43-year-old Brent Farley of Northstar Fugitive Recovery on charges of criminal trespass, and disorderly conduct.

Now authorities are investigating the source of the tip.
